Kershaw Gardens is a 50 hectare area of parkland situated on an old landfill site in the Rockhampton suburb of Park Avenue, Queensland.
Officially opened in 1988, the parklands are bordered by the Bruce Highway (Moores Creek Road), High Street, Dowling Street and Moores Creek, which flows through the gardens on the eastern boundary, and into the Fitzroy River.
Kershaw Gardens consists of a network of nature walks, enabling visitors to inspect an array of native flora that has been planted throughout the area.

  • Excellent place to stop with the kids & dogs to break a drive when passing through Rockhampton. Leash-free area for dogs at the southern end of the park. Plenty of parking (even if towing a trailer or caravan), BBQ & Picnic areas, awesome playground to burn off energy - even a water-wading area to cool off on hot days!
  • Perfect play area for kids of all ages. Loads of things for parents to join in with the little ones. Safe shaded area, delightful little stream type water play area to cool off on those hottest days. Visited today, for the first time with my 2 year old granddaughter. We had loads of fun together. Wish we had something like this back home in England.
